An 11-year-old boy, Talgat, and his 6-year-old sister, Gulya, live in abject poverty with their parents and a mentally ill uncle in the slums of Almaty. Their parents are heavy drinkers. Their uncle, though 30 years old, behaves like a 5-year-old boy. Talgat feels responsible for Gulya, his uncle and himself. The three of them are like beautiful flowers destined to grow up on the 'trash-heap of life.'
